Today, Saints Row revealed a brand new trailer that showed what fans can expect from the next installment in the franchise. Instead of a sequel, the video below revealed that the franchise is actually getting rebooted.
After the trailer, there was a lot more information showed off, including the fact that the main character will no longer be custom created. Instead, The Boss will be played by Bryce Charles, with the goal of creating a criminal empire with her delinquent gang of friends.
The reboot will focus on similar elements, including plenty of chaos, but seems to be backing off from the cartoony, over-the-top antics the series became know for. From what has been displayed so far, it looks far more like the traditional Grand Theft Auto gang warfare style story and gameplay the first title in Saints Row featured.
Saints Row will be released on February 25 for PC and PlayStation and Xbox consoles. For more information, be sure to check back to the site for updates.
